New Converse Mountain Club Capsule Delivers Style and Utility

November 05, 2018 - Before a canvas sneaker stepped onto a basketball court and before the Chuck Taylor All Star became a globally recognized symbol of self-expression, Marquis Converse founded the Converse Rubber Shoe Company in 1908. Ten rubber galoshes, Converse’s first products, were produced on April 30, 1909. In the beginning, the company also created triple tread tires, leather duck hunting boots and hockey pucks.

During the World War II, Converse, like many American companies, shifted production efforts to supporting the troops. Its rubber origins contributed to the manufacturing of rubber boots, canvas training boots, weatherized gear and reversible camouflage ponchos. 

The utility of these heritage items shaped the new Converse Mountain Club capsule. Specifically, Converse was inspired by the Extreme Cold Weather Boot, a rubber military boot developed in the 1950s and once produced by Converse. 

Using this utility design lens, the new collection reinterprets three classic Converse styles — the Chuck Taylor All Star, One Star and Fastbreak — adding GORE-TEX® technology to make the shoes waterproof. The result: The Mountain Club line is at once stylish and functional.

Converse Mountain Club is available from Converse and at select retailers November 8.

Converse and Tyler, the Creator Introduce New Fabrics to the GOLF le FLEUR* collection

October 18, 2018 - In the summer of 2017, Tyler, the Creator began reinterpreting the Converse One Star with a flower motif that now defines his signature GOLF le FLEUR* collection. Now, and for the first time, he expands that vision to a new silhouette — the Chuck 70 — with fresh fabrics. Designed with a burlap and vintage parchment canvas upper and asymmetrical GOLF le FLEUR* print, Tyler offers a distinct, creative take on the classic Chuck 70. In the new collection, the burlap upper is also added to the signature GOLF le FLEUR* One Star.

This aesthetic also carries over to the capsule’s accompanying apparel, an open-weave fabric anorak in Curry and Natural.

Converse and Tyler, the Creator’s GOLF le FLEUR* collection will release in an exclusive presale partnership with Foot Locker at Camp Flog Gnaw November 10, and launch at select retailers globally on November 15.
